Will Jason Biggs be binge-watching Orange is the New Black when the third season drops on Netflix? Maybe so, because that's as close as he'll get to Piper (Taylor Schilling) and her onscreen drama this season.

According to the American Pie star, his character Larry Bloom simply isn't needed for this upcoming season. He told HuffPost Live, "It's not a Larry season. They have a lot of characters to service on that show and, at the end of the day, it's a women's prison show. Larry is not a woman or in prison. But, the good news is with a show like that, there's always the possibility that he could come back. And, I would go back in a heartbeat."

Biggs added, "I'm actually really excited to see Season 3, and talking to a bunch of people over there, I think it's going to be pretty awesome."

The last we saw of Larry, he was schtupping Piper's former best friend Polly (Maria Dizzia, who is also in the charming Noah Baumbach comedy While We're Young). That didn't exactly win him any cookies from the OITNB fan base or with Piper, so there will be plenty of fans who won't be too sorry to have a Larry-free season. On the other hand, the real-life Piper and Larry are married and together after all these years. On the third hand, there's so much to explore with the characters in and around Litchfield Penitentiary that the writers could spend years and years just on those storylines alone.
